I would like to uncheck "download headers" in the connector but I don't come 
that far. I reinstalled everything for about 8 times and deleted the bynari 
profile. nothing.
I think its time kontact on windows gets more stable.
btw. my boss said something like he would switch to Thunderbird if he only 
could sync his winmobile with TB. He didn't knew that I allredy discouvered 
birdiesync :-))
